Goats/kidding update summary (who's on first)

Sunday noonish, Alys had a brown boy. All is well with them.

Monday mid-afternoon, Sashimi had black twin boys with white stars. She rejected the weaker twin initially, so we took him inside. Then the second twin got chilled. Both boys are now in the Great Room. We milked Sashimi this evening and fed her milk to the boys. Singly, she accepts either boy as hers. We have not tried both at the same time.

Monday afternoon, Mona had a white boy. He is now in the Great Room with Sashimi's twins. We milked Mona this evening. Since we just took the boy from her (he got cold) we don't know if she will take him back tomorrow.

Monday night, Anna had a white girl. She is all systems go. It will be interesting to see if this girl has horns, but that's a different conversation for another day.

Tuesday afternoon, Dahlia had a black reverse badger girl. She is all systems go... so far.

Jessie is due any day now. Quince is right after that. Penny is due in mid-March.

Most importantly, Quixotic_goat is a HERO. He's a two-handed, monkey-man HERO, I tell you.

And yeah, I'm staying home again tomorrow. I have three baby goats looking for food. It's an exciting life I lead.
